The commercial space at 1160 Sun Peaks Road, at the entrance of the municipality, has a new tenant, and she promises to bring laughter and learning with her lease.
Renee Murakami is the owner of Kamloops-based Enriched Daycare Inc., and she’s excited to bring her family-based recreational services to Sun Peaks.
“We’re going to start offering services in December, on the weekends, and we’ll offer day camps and kids’ educational classes and birthday parties,” Murakami explains. “We won’t be doing daycare at Sun Peaks at this time, but we’d be interested in hearing if parents are interested and seeing what the demand is.”
It’s Murakami’s goal to use her years of experience in childcare and education to offer fun learning programs that help children and families achieve emotional health at Sun Peaks, year round.
Some of her program ideas are hip hop reading and math, “mad scientist,” kids’ cooking, leadership programs, dance classes, pet care courses, a young writers’ club and more. She also wants to offer some parenting classes for parents.
“Basically we want to serve the health and wellness of families, and foster inventors’ minds where possibilities are limitless,”
The programs she’ll run will be up to 13 weeks in duration, and will be offered at different levels.
“We want to support the community of Sun Peaks and help it grow in a positive way,” says Murakami. “We need the support of the community to make this feasible and make it go on a long term basis, because I do want to make it a permanent location. I want to get back to real values, and I think Sun Peaks offers that.”
